Transportation Planning History: What assumptions and approaches have guided domestic transportation planning in this century?; How do transportation planning's roots and traditions affect current practice?; In what ways did transportation planning and technologies interact to produce evolving city forms?
  2. Transportation and Land Use Theory: What frameworks have been developed to understand the interrelationships between transportation and land use, and how might these affect how we view potential transportation planning alternatives?
  3. Transportation Planning Technique: Formal approaches to modeling the urban transportation
  4. Land Use and Transportation History: What assumptions and approaches have guided the evolution of domestic land use and transportation systems in the past few decades. We will explore these approaches as well as their limitations.
